these are the things that i do in pursuit of journalism.

and, it’s just really shiny.

also, so i don’t forget, THANK YOU, MICHELLE FOR BEING MY PATRON.  that is severely cool of you.

re: the pop! show, studio spaces, and residencies

so–i may have, on the downlow, made a vidlet of the opening for those of you who couldn’t be there.

and, because, i just didn’t manage to do much liveblogging of the event because–omg–i had managed to block out what openings (even tiny openings like this one) are like–especially when you’re much smaller than everyone else around you.

new year, POP! Comic, Manga, Grafitti exhibit at the ARTgarage (Green Bay), and new projects

or–more of the same.  who knows.

BUT!  happy new year (day 2), y’all.  we made it, which is something i wasn’t sure was going to happen.

*cues mountain goats*

(nb:  that video is way creepier than i was expecting.)

the POP! Comic, Manga, Grafitti exhibit goes up on Tuesday, January 6th, and the opening reception is January 9th from 5-8pm.  me and my art shall be in attendance.  (go here if you’d like a preview.)

so, projects.   Continue reading

where did november go?

*NB:  the featured image is a wallpaper that’s over on my flickr, but y’all can also get the abject little tree over on my redbubble on some posh swag.

okay, i seriously do not know how i didn’t post anything over here throughout the entire duration of november.

i mean, there was nanowrimo, which i failed at.

there was epic work, which, seriously, try making two videos a week minimally on top of writing and editing a ton of other articles and doing the social media and see how well you stay on top of things.  we also did this thing where we have new editors, and i have writers that report to me, but that really started in october?

there’s also that i’m preparing for a pop culture show in january?

i dunno.  i’ve no good explanation.

but, i have been drawing lovely things?

and, because what’s more fun than watching me unbox things and muck about in my studios?  videos.

okay, i’m off to do more work because there’s always more work to do, and tomorrow, i’m going to madison to go to the museum of contemporary art for the opening of Narayan Mahon’s show.

because i’m covering it for The Rainbow Hub.

i’m press for an art event.

*INCOHERENT SCREAMING*

okay.  courage.

drive-by halloween update–now with horns!

i totally have clown-fear.

okay, first things first, WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT YEAR WHEN MY SKETCH-A-DAY RUNS OUT?  should there be another sketch-a-day?  a year-long inktober?  (idk about that one.)  more videos?  WHAT ARE Y’ALL’S OPINIONS ON THE THING?!?!?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE MORE OF?!?!?!?

so, yeah, super-busy.  click the play button on the video to find out all about it, because–boy-howdy–it’s kinda epic in the busy-ness.

and, there is totally a NaNoWriMo pep talk hidden in that video.  and comic recs.

and an epic squee about carmilla and the amaze that is LaF.

and, i totally have new stuff up on my redbubble.

and, y’all should definitely check out my inktober album on flickr.

I HAVE BEEN BEE-LIKE.

and, i’ve gotten further along in the my little pony piece for the pop culture show.

so, i have one more pony (fluttershy) and spike to design, and then i can do the thing where i paint.

*IS NOT IN ANYWAY, SHAPE, OR FORM HYPERVENTILATING*

i have, however, already finished khoshekh.

i’m sorry i’m in a hurry today.  trick-or-treaters and all.

i do have a couple of other videos that y’all might be interested in:

and, as always, there’s always my writing over at The Rainbow Hub.

if you like what i do video-wise or art-wise, maybe consider doing the thing where you become my patron on patreon.  i have nifty prizes that i never get to use.

okay.  spoopy and candy and costumes–GO!

courage.

and–i have a cold

and, about a million and four things to do.

i’m sorry that it’s bee so long, again; the boss has been hiring a swath of new writers for The Hub, and my editor duties went up as well as me being not in full control of my faculties and having added more articles to my list of writer duties, the continuation of sketch-a-day, preparing for the Pop Culture Show at the ARTgarage in january, and–because i needed more things to do–inktober.

and, nanowrimo’s coming up fast.

did i mention my sketchbook project is due in january too?

yep, i’m just brilliant.

why do i do this to myself?!?!?!
